Hi Joy,

Mealworms are actually beetle larvae for the beetle tenebrio molitor (I think). They crawl around sort of like a caterpillar, and shed their skin as they grow, then pupate, and become beetles.

I don't know how they compare to earthworms nutritionally, but earthworms would probably be just as easy to raise in a small earthworm culture. I have always wanted to try it. Red wigglers would probably be a good size worm for button quail.

I didn't know were in New Zealand! Are you a member of ButtonQuailUSA? We have another member from NZ and a number of Australians that are getting a little BQ network going.
